We made our pre coloured Dr Oetker Ready to Roll Icing a little less bold by mixing with a little white fondant. You'll need blue, green, yellow, orange, and red fondant. Mix your own orange fondant using equal parts red and yellow. Start by rolling your blue fondant into a log about 3mm thick, gently shape around a straw.
Roll some light blue fondant, made by mixing two parts white fondant to one part blue fondant, to about 3mm thick and cut with a scalloped cutter to create a base for your cupcake topper. Dampen the back of your rainbow and stick in place on your fondant topper, add the clouds and leave to set slightly before adding to the top of your freshly iced cupcake.
To make sunshine toppers, roll some white and yellow fondant to about 2mm thick. Cut a blossom shape from the white fondant. Use the same scalloped cutter used to cut the topper base to cut away some of the white blossom shape. This will create a cloud the same shape as your topper base. Use a little water to stick the cloud in place on your base.
